There are hundreds of different kinds of leather qualities, and there’s often an inverse correlation between comfort and durability when dealing with top and full grain cowhides. This relationship, along with the price, frame size and overall construction, should all play a role in determining which leather sofa is right for you, your family and your lifestyle.
The benefits of coil seating construction are often exaggerated by leather furniture suppliers. The Chesterfield Shop offers webbing, no-sag sinuous, drop-in coils or hand-tied coils, all with superb durability and strength.
More important in your decision should be such considerations as frame construction, tailoring, filling materials, quality of the leather, value for your dollar, and, of course, the reputation of the dealer.
Make the wise move to leather furniture this year but always make sure it’s an informed decision with the help of a trained design consultant from The Chesterfield Shop. Beware of stores that carry leather that calls itself “bonded,” “faux,” “leatherette,” “pleather,” “PVC,” etc. It will crack and peel and dry out over time, and you should not be paying for a commodity like real leather when in fact, it may not be.
